A suspect led a high-speed police chase through the Los Angeles area on Sunday in a stolen police cruiser, with lights flashing and sirens blaring.

ABC7 reports the chase ended in a parking lot when police rammed the cruiser.

The driver reversed and continued trying to avoid police, helicopter video shows.

There was an officer involved shooting, just before 11 p.m. NBC News reports the suspect is dead.

Several officers followed behind the suspect as he sped through freeways and streets, reportedly going as fast as 100 mph.

All officers are OK.

Police didn't say how the car was stolen.
